Hi, it's Carolyn Beam. What little girl doesn't like to add a cute barrette or hair tie to her hair? With the GO! Me, girls can make adorable barrettes or hair ties to match their outfits and to give to their friends. They're fun to make and work up quickly with the GO! Me!

Both the barrette and hair tie are made with felt which can be found in craft supply stores in 9" x 12" pieces. One piece in different colors is sufficient to make several accessories, or scraps can be used as well for these kid-friendly crafts.
